First Time Floor Press

A little tired today. Went in for the 4:15pm class.

Warm-up

3 Rounds

  • 1m Bicycles
  • 1m Side Plank (30s each side)
  • 1m Flutter Kicks
  • 30s Rest

I don’t think I’ve even been able to hold on for a straight minute of flutter kicks, but I did it 3 times today. Core strength baby!

Strength

5×5 Floor Press

I’ve never done this before, so didn’t know what to expect. I really liked it. Warmed up with 75# and then did my working sets with 125#, 175#, 180#, 185#, 190#, and 195#. Had some left in the tank too. Happy with that though since last week I failed after 3 reps at 205# on the bench press. Today I lifted more weight overall because the jump was right up to 175# for the 2nd set.

WOD

5 Rounds

  • 1m SDLHP (53# KB)
  • 1m KBS (53# KB)
  • 1m OH Lunges (20# MB)
  • 1m Ring Dips
  • 1m Thrusters (75#)
  • 1m Rest

I scored 104, 101, and 102 for a 307 total.

Finisher

  • 120 DU

I started off with 39 in a row. Whenever I get close to my unbroken streak of 44, I think I get excited and fail. I finished in 2:08. My arms were so tired it was really hard to keep spinning the rope after that first set.
